Speaking seriously for a moment, if you feel that you are struggling, then it's of paramount importance to remember that therapy is ''not'' for the weak. If you are in need of help then trying to obtain the help you need is a sign of courage and maturity, not weakness. If you feel you need to talk to a therapist, then by all means talk to one. If you feel like you have only one final way out, [[UsefulNotes/SuicidePrevention rest assured there is always a better way]]. There are always people who are able and willing to talk to you and who will do everything in their power to help you if only you seek their help out.

* In the StephenKing short story ''[[Literature/NightShift The Boogeyman]]'' (something of a spiritual predecessor to ''Literature/{{IT}}''), the principal character is indeed seeing a therapist. And yet, he insists that he doesn't actually ''need'' therapy and sneers disdainfully at what he imagines the doctor's other patients are like (gays, crossdressers, and people who [[NapoleonDelusion "strut around thinking they're Napoleon"]]).

* Also a serious problem among emergency services workers and doctors (including therapists themselves sometimes), because they often, despite training and knowledge, inherently believe some variant of this trope, or are more interested in saving others/giving to others than taking care of themselves and their own emotions, especially in disaster situations or the like.

* In ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'', Christian seems to think so. So does his adoptive family, probably, seeing as they adopted a deeply traumatized child and never bothered to seek professional help for him, despite his being [[http://www.asha.org/public/speech/disorders/SelectiveMutism/ selectively mute]] for two years. There is a psychiatrist, but he is only there to deliver exposition and to flatter Ana.

* ''{{Numb3rs}}'': Don wants to the therapist to just sign the paper and get on with it. He has no interest in actually engaging. Eventually, the shrink brings him around.

* ''{{NCIS}}'': ''Also'' similar to the ''[=NUMB3RS=]'' example. The team finally gets some long overdue therapy. It . . . seems to help. A little. * ''TheMentalist'': It is implied that Patrick Jane believes that from the pilot. However, it later transpires that he actually saw one for a lengthy period after shutting down once he came across the corpses of his family, and benefitted from it.

* In ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' comic, Sonic watches as Robotnik's psychosis takes hold of him, to the point that he must be put in a straitjacket. Sonic seems deeply troubled by this. He tries talking to Sally about it, but she tells him the equivalent of "Suck it up and quit being such a drag; you're harshing our mellow."

* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'': There are at least two therapists in the fleet, but only Bulldog and Hera are sent to see them. Starbuck declines therapy, saying that those doctors [[PsychoPsychologist are more messed up than their patients]].
